Thanks to all who have or will comment on my humble offering for this weeks Magpie. I feel honored to have lived during a time when our country was so proud and its citizens so much aware of the cost of freedom. While we continue to fight wars, I fear the understanding of their need now sometimes escapes us. The flag my ancestors gave their lives to save is now flown upside down by unhappy, illegal aliens as they demand rights that are not their due and our leaders commit acts of treason against us without a thought or care.
I choose to recall those glory days of honor. I will always stand and cover my heart during the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and will forever thank God for this Great Country, with a tear in my eye.
Today is our day of Independence. To all who share my feelings I wish a heartfelt HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
